We are a small (spare-time) farm with around 9 cows, 9 chickens, 3 ducks, 2 cats, 1 dog and always a lot going on.
“We” are Sandra & Helmut, both in our 50s, who thought that now all kids have moved out & besides having our own small business (special machine construction) we’d like to fill our afternoons and weekends with some meaningful & really pleasant work outdoors.
Our property is located on the outskirts of a small town (~8.000 persons) in Lower Austria, surrounded by the most eastern mountains of the Alps. Besides situated rather rural, the next bigger towns can be easily reached by train (Wiener Neustadt 30mins // Vienna 1h).
We would love some assistance with our little farm as we are both still working. You would be living in a small cottage in our garden (next to the swimming pond) which is equipped with it’s own bathroom and kitchen.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Besides accommodation in your own cottage we can provide you with the authentic rural Austrian experience (= occasional beer festivals, great local food, holidays & festivities) as well as guided “work” at our little farm.
Naturally, German can be taught.
We’d wish for an outgoing and active traveller who can stay for a little while. Loving animals is a must - experience is not necessarily required.
Also, there is always something going
on (family gatherings, friends visiting etc. ) so it would be great if you like being around people. 😉
We provide a small
cottage in our garden - fully equipped with anything you might need (bathroom, toilet, kitchen & dining table, oven).
The Austrian capital Vienna is located approx. 1h from our village and easily reachable by direct train. Also, living at the Eastern End of the Alps, we can offer a great variety of nature. Activitites like hiking, climbing, mountainbiking, skiing etc. can be carried out in our area.
